Engineering Modifications Simplify a Florida HRSG Removal and Replacement Project

Barnhart Crane and Rigging was recently contracted by a customer out of Florida to remove six old heater recovery steam generators (HRSG’s) and replace them with new modules. However, the team used the same tilting frame for both the removal and replacement, making the project a challenge because the older, smaller HRSG’s did not completely fit the Nooter/BCR tilting frame.

The Barnhart team found a solution by fabricating special lifting lugs and a support beam so older modules would fit perfectly into the tilting frame.  An additional deck spacer on the Goldhofer trailer eased the module’s heavy load on the trailer’s axle lines. Because the job took place on a power plant, the team had little room to maneuver the lifting equipment. However, the crew completed the job successfully and on time.
